Neapolitan Nativity

18th November 2022 @ 11:00 am - 31st December 2022 @ 7:00 pm


*This event is included in our Auckland Castle Christmas experience ticket for £14

A monumental Neapolitan Nativity scene will dazzle visitors to The Auckland Project this Christmas. The 18th-century Baroque créche, known in Italian as a presepe, is a giant Nativity scene staged in a true-life Neapolitan setting. Look out for bawdy street-sellers, raucous musicians and boisterous children alongside the familiar sacred elements of the Holy Family, wise men, angels and shepherds.

One of the most important examples outside Italy, the display measures a remarkable 11ft tall and 15ft wide. The Faith Gallery will house this incredible Nativity scene, offering visitors a first glimpse inside the Faith Museum, due to open in autumn 2023.

This experience is included with our Auckland Castle Christmas ticket.
